Jose Mourinho is back at Chelsea. It’s official.
On Monday afternoon Chelsea made the public announcement that everybody knew was coming: Jose Mourinho will be the Blues’ new coach following the recent departure of Rafa Benitez.
Mourinho has penned a four year contract on his Stamford Bridge return, whilst the Portuguese boss has landed at Chelsea with coaches Rui Faria, Silvino Louro and Jose Morais.
Although Mourinho was always expected to return to the Pensioners this summer, once the official appointment was made plenty of chatter was sparked over the Special One’s return.
Below are a collection of the best tweets following Jose Mourinho’s second coming to Chelsea.

Mourinho’s record against the rest of the (probable) top four managers (Pellegrini/Moyes/Wenger): Games: 23, Wins: 14, Losses: 1, GD: +30.

110 – Percentage of Chelsea fans who now think they’ll win the Premier League next season. Over-confident.
